The Australian Women’s Working Futures Project (AWWF) is a landmark study of national social attitudes regarding gender and the future of work.  This study provides extensive and detailed insight into a diverse group of women’s current work experiences, challenges and opportunities, as well as their fears and aspirations for the future.  The findings of this work provide researchers, policymakers and practitioners with a new resource for interrogating what young women value in work, how they envisage their future, and what gaps need to be addressed to deliver gender equality in the future of work.
